2002 Drama Desk nominee Reno will take her Sept. 11th think piece, Rebel Without a Pause, on the road - briefly - before reopening at the brand new Lions Theatre on Off-Broadway's Theatre Row. Rebel will visit San Francisco's Brava Theatre Center for a short run, June 18-23, before its New York return June 27.

Reno's solo show had been written before Sept. 11, but after the disaster, leaving her, as she puts it, a "refugee of Tribecastan," she threw out the original script. Now the comedian follows a more stream-of consciousness monologue that changes with current events and her own feelings, speaking out on topics of the hour such as patriotism, young war-mongers, ignorant citizens and the idea of self-imprisonment.

Reno got her start in 1990 in her Off Broadway show Reno: In Rage and Rehab, and has go on to make shows like Reno Once Removed and the HBO Special Reno Finds Her Mom, co-starring Lily Tomlin and Mary Tyler Moore.

The June 27 opening night performance, christening the Lion Theatre space, will be a benefit for School to School, a parents organization based out of PS 3, which took in the students displaced by the September 11 disaster. They are actively seeking to build a new school in Afganistan for students who were denied their education during the Taliban's reign.
